OCR Alpha is a boutique search firm who provide a bespoke talent acquisition service across the Investment Management and Hedge Fund sectors. Our core business covers both alpha and revenue generating positions.

We believe that being able to evolve and adapt within an ever changing environment is key to the development and continuity of successful business relationships. In an industry where underlying costs have come under increased scrutiny, OCR Alpha offers the key elements of a quality search service, within a much more favourable cost structure compared to many of the traditional search firms. We firmly believe that delivery is paramount, and the track record of our consultants proves that we can deliver excellent results for our clients.

Each consultant within OCR Alpha is highly passionate about their work, and they strive to be the best within their specialist sectors. All of our consultants come from a finance related background, which allows us to develop a deep and thorough understanding of both our clients and candidate’s needs.

Our business is our reputation. We believe that commitment, delivery and integrity are essential to building up long term and sustainable relationships, and it is these ideologies which OCR Alpha lives by.
